Basic Formatting and Printing Tips
  • Customize the Avery template for your product using one of Avery's template or software tools. For the best way to print your Avery products, use Avery Design & Print Online.
  • Adjust printer settings to optimize print quality. For example, choose the Labels setting if printing labels, or choose the Cards setting if printing cards. Choose Photo Quality for optimum printing results.
  • Always test print on a plain sheet of paper. Hold the printed sheet behind the Avery product to check the alignment of your layout. Slight adjustments to the layout may be necessary. If the entire sheet is slightly misaligned, adjust the top and/or left margins slightly if your program has this feature. When satisfied with the layout, print onto the Avery product.
  • When printing label products, do not feed labels through your printer more than once. The Avery satisfaction guarantee extends only to a sheet of labels that has been fed through a printer a single time.
  • Use only Avery brand products for guaranteed results.

Best Uses

    This review is from AVERY Basic Formatting and Printing Tips:

    I designed my own DVD label from the downloaded program, and it worked great. There are beautiful label options on the online system, so I thought I'd try those. Love the new design, however I wasted printed 8 pages of labels before I realized that the labels didn't line up. I followed the instructions to use the printer adjustment on the printer page. I looked everywhere, and couldn't find it. The help video on the print page did not work, so I searched online for it. When I found where the adjustment tab should be, I went back to the program to find that the adjustment link was replaced by Avery's advertisement to use their printing service. When I redesigned to Avery's printing specs, it was obvious that the whole online template was off.

    If the online templates are only for printing through Avery's printing program, they make that fact clear before we waste our own time and Avery product.

    I'm going to try to use the PDF I created from the online program to place as an image on the downloaded Avery program I have. Hopefully that will work, but honestly, I'm disappointed with the hassle.

        Avery 18660, will not print. I have a HP Photosmart Plus. It works well with everything except your product. I click print, it states it's loading, and nothing happens. Now I have labels I can't use. You would think they would include drivers for one of the most popular printers.

            I cannot print from my computer to either of 2 printers at 2 different locations. They are both HP Printers and I have read of software issues back to 2010 which don't seem to have been fixed.
            I now have labels and devoted time to a system that wont print. I just get the message "Spooling" for 10 minutes and then "Printing" but nothing ever comes out.

            Poor template spacing

            By Tim the novice

            from Tacoma, WA

            This review is from AVERY Basic Formatting and Printing Tips:

            The help page was good as far as it went, but it didn't address my problem. The vertical space between the labels on the online template and the vertical space between the peel and stick labels was not the same. As a result, the alignment was fine when the printer printed the top row of labels; but, when the bottom row printed, the image was too low to align with the actual label (it shifted about 1/4-inch). The template provides for general shifting of the image to improve printer alignment, but it doesn't provide a means to scale the vertical dimension.
